Alzheimers Society staff members in the North East have been baking this week to promote the charitys Cupcake Day on June 16.

The charity has created a new fun method for people in the UK to support it and now is the time to plan what you will do as its first ever Cupcake Day, in association with woman&home, will take place on Thursday, June 16.

The money brought in will be used in various ways – for example, £60 pays for a dementia research-focused blood test and £20 pays for someone to attend an Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Café for a month.

Hannah Woodworth, dementia support worker for the Alzheimer’s Society, said: “We are calling on cake lovers from across the North East to get involved and join our cupcake crusade.
